Bonino and SorosGeorge Soros with his pal, the infamous abortionist and friend of Pope Francis, Emma Bonino, at the "In The Pursuit of Peace Award Dinner 2015"

With the breaking of the news into the English language media-sphere the other day, some thoughts converged, into the form of a question: Why would anyone expect Emma “La Bicicletta” Bonino not to be invited to speak at a Catholic Church in Italy? Catholic editorialists are furious that Bonino was invited to speak at the church of San Defendente in Ronco di Cossato, on July 26, 2017, “World Refugee Day”. But there is an underlying tone of defeated routine in their protestations, as though they are objecting out of a dogged sense of a duty to fulfill rather than any real outrage; let alone shock.

A Bergoglian cardinal for the new Gay Church

Introduction

As I have noted on these pages more than once, the essential novelty of the Bergoglian pontificate, even in the midst of the turbulent sea of novelty that is the post-conciliar epoch, is its carefully planned and relentlessly executed assault on the Sixth Commandment under the guise of “accompanying and “integrating” public sinners involved in “second marriages” and other “irregular unions” through a vague process of “discernment” of their “concrete situations.”  In other words, a form of situation ethics in matters sexual. This development is simply apocalyptic. There is no other word for what we are witnessing.

0214WEISTLING MORGAN FAMILY TRADITIONS

Editor’s Introduction: The following article was written by longtime Remnant columnist, Solange Hertz (RIP). Though the article first appeared back in July of 1972, there can be no doubt, given the collapse of Catholic schools (and the subsequent explosion of home schools) and the general assault on Christian family life, that this article is more timely today than ever. In fact, it provides some of the best arguments to date in favor of Catholic counterrevolution by means of the total restoration of Catholic family life (including home education).  But, don’t take our word for it.  Read on and take that of one of the most prescient Catholic writers of the last half century—Solange Hertz. MJM


"Any parent tempted to think his home is his idea, to do with as he pleases, heads a house of slavery." 

- Solange Hertz -

Many years ago, squarely facing our ignorant brood and the inescapable fact that somebody had to teach them the truths of the Faith, I began looking around for tools. Among my youthful wild oats was a degree in Education which led me to believe I would need, at the very least, a blackboard.

“Let those who are still separated from Us consider attentively the ancient glories of their Church which were at once a reflection and an increment of the glories of the Church of Rome. Let them consider, moreover, and remember that this Apostolic See has been waiting for them so long and so anxiously, not as coming to a strange dwelling place, but as finally returning to their paternal home.” – Pope Pius XI

In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

In the Liturgical Calendar, last Sunday was the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost.  In the hearts of those who love the Blessed Virgin Mary – which should be ALL of us – that Sunday, July 16, was the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel: “Beatae Mariae Virginis de Monte Carmelo.”

During this 100th Anniversary Year of the appearances of Our Lady of Fatima, recall that on October 13, 1917 the Mother of God appeared at one point during the Great Miracle of the Sun to Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia as Our Lady of Mount Carmel, holding forth a Brown Scapular.  Keep in mind that whenever Our Lady of Fatima appeared to the three shepherd children, She always had a star on the hem of Her gown.

Years ago I was brought in as a priest to a psych ward in a VA hospital to work with a suicidal Vietnam veteran. His family was convinced that the root of his problem was not merely mental but diabolical. After spending some time with the tormented veteran, I agreed that something diabolical was at work. One thing I remember the veteran saying was that he “danced with the devil.” I shudder at the thought!

Pope Francis published a new apostolic letter on July 11th entitled , Greater Love Than This, On the Offering of Life. Currently there is no English translation of the letter. However, many news outlets have reported its contents. These reports state that Pope Francis has just added an unprecedented fourth route to becoming a Saint in the Catholic Church.

Lefebvre Ordination 1977 b

Ever since the New Year we’ve been quietly celebrating The Remnant’s 50th anniversary in these columns with a wide variety of vintage Remnant articles that appeared over the years since my late father founded The Remnant in 1967. Over 1,100 issues of The Remnant have gone to press during the turbulent half-century since the close of Vatican II, and I’m proud of the effort our team has made to chronicle the advance of the Modernist Revolution on the one hand, and the ensuing Traditional Catholic Counterrevolution on the other.

A few writers and pundits have begun to notice it, but even their comments cannot encompass or fully express what has happened intellectually to our society, to our present-day politics, and to our culture. At least one third, perhaps many more, of the citizens of our nation apparently live in a parallel universe, with its own set of foundational beliefs, its own standards of truth and narrative of facts. This universe in almost every respect represents the aggressive contrary, the negation, of the inherited, rooted principles on which our historic Western and Christian civilization is based. This “other” reality, this paradigm, did not all of a sudden just spring up or just appear, it has been cultivated and nurtured for centuries. Its creating philosophers understood that their operational premises and desired objectives ran up full force against the ingrained traditions and historic legacy of a culture and civilization that traced its origins not only to the beliefs of the ancient Hebrews, but also to the highest art and philosophy and statecraft of the Greeks and of Rome.
